namely- my dogs barking, or if i'm not at home when my dad comes( he needs everything, from tea to be given to him in his hand), if they had a bad day at work.. and the worst of all, if i try to justify.. they start their comparisons with my sister, cousins, friend's children..
and because of this i'm pretty messed up in my head and i keep throwing out anger randomly cause i cant keep it in anymore.
and thats horrible cause people now think im a short tempered always irritated kinda person which i'm not.
they have a problem if i talk to people outside my house, cause in India , it is always about 'what the society thinks'
i'm starting to hate them, and it is not my fault!
Well, your situation just looks similar to me. My mom always used to scold me for anything and everything a while ago and I get angry at her and started arguing with her for her behavior towards me.
Recently I found that when my mom argues with me for things i do(which,she feels is not right for me), I would completely ignore those and do something else.
If you completely ignore your parents when they are showing their anger towards you, ignore them completely at that moment.
Act as if you didn't hear them. (If you have i pod or smoething, listen to it when they scold you).Also note that if you do this, then they would get so pissed of.Resist the temptation to argue with them
. If you do this, then after sometime they would just stop arguing with you.
